Another Hamantaschen Cookie Dough

3 eggs
1 cup oil
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1⁄2 cup water
1⁄2 cup orange juice
1⁄8 teaspoon salt
4 cups flour (approximately)
1 egg beaten (for the top)

Directions: In a bowl, combine the eggs, oil, sugar, water and orange juice. Whisk to combine. Add the flour, salt and baking powder and fold it in, being careful not to overmix. This will be a soft dough. Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Divide dough into 3 parts. Roll out to about 1⁄4-inch thick on a floured surface. Cut into rounds and place a heaping spoonful of filling in the center of the round. Pull up the sides to form a triangle. Brush the top of the filled hamantashcen with the beaten egg. Bake on a lightly greased or parchment-covered baking sheet at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or slightly longer until golden brown. Makes 11⁄2 to 2 dozen cookies depending on the size of the rounds.
